Random Five Friday



This is the calling card of the teenage boy who lives in this house.  

I live about twenty minutes away from a Kroger and Wal-Mart Super Center, but I consider those pretty standard super markets.  Here is a list of the top markets across the country.  A couple of others on this list are an hour away and the rest are only wishes.  

Fourteen more days of school left for the students.....not that I am counting or anything.  

I heard Linda  Rondstadt on the radio this week, but also wish I could hear this.

As part of Teacher Appreciation Week, we had a wonderful luncheon at my school.  I had a slice of Coconut Pie that reminded me of Chess Pie......so, here is a recipe that I am going to try this weekend.  

Go forth and have a great weekend, people!

  1. Love chess pie! My Mother always made it for me, when I was growing up, and I kept her recipe and now it is a traditional part of our Christmas dinner.

  2. A kid after my own heart. Center pieces are the best.

  3. The calling card made me laugh out loud...then cry because my son is coming home from college next week and the same card will be left here. We are counting down the last days of school here too. Enjoy!

  5. The middle piece is always the best... cakes, brownies, cornbread, casseroles, lasagna, scalloped potatoes, quiches, meatloaf, did I mention brownies & cakes?

  10. I love that calling card. Aren't teenage boys funny. My grandson will be 13 in a year and a half. I don't think my daughter is looking forward to it. xo Laura

  12. Laughed at your home made cake with the square out of the middle. Reminded me of something my sons would do when they were young. Good weekend to you too -- barbara

  14. I admire the artistry of the teenaged young man who lives in your house. At his age, I did not have the same eye, nor the guts to take a slice out of something before my mother invited me to do so>

    The list of grocery stores was interesting. Down here, Publix is everywhere, and it is spectacular. At #4, it is the highest ranked of the stores I consider real grocery stores. Costco (#3) is here, and is very good for some things, but the large volumes of stuff you have to buy and the limited choice make it incomplete, so far as I am concerned. And, Whole Foods (#2) and Trader Joes (#1) are also nearby, but they are expensive specialty stores. I can't imagine buying paper towels or sandwich bags at either place.

  15. That is a hoot about the center being gone.. but I want to know what kind of cake that was!! I am going to try to make some zucchini bread tomorrow. We have Trader Joes and Whole Foods in Portland, but not one trendy store in Gresham which is the town where we shop most. Happy Mother's Day on Sunday! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  16. That dish photo made me laugh, takes me back. I was interested in the supermarkets. There are many I hadn't heard of, some I have seen on travels and others that I enjoy shopping in, like Wegmans. I love that place. Thank you for the recipe link also.

  21. The coconut pie sounds yummy! I did something for Pierce's teachers each day of the week. It was fun :-)
    I just counted - 13 days left for Pierce! And just 8 for the twins.

  23. I went to a breakfast this week and someone had done exactly this. Was your son in Maine on Thursday???????

  24. The young man has a creative and precise way to cut pieces! The Eagles own so much to Linda Rondstadt...

  25. Happy Mother's Day to you, Michelle. I know they will spoil you no end.

  26. So, I guess he likes to eat centre pieces as well as edges?!

  27. Ha! Now if that doesn't say "Teenage Boy" - nothing does. :) A classic, and the kind of sight commonly seen here, along with empty cookie jars. :)
    As for the grocery stores / super markets... I'm about in the same boat as you. I don't think I've ever seen any of these in our state (I'm sure some of them exist down in the twin cities a few hours away) except we have a Super Walmart in our nearby town- about 20 min away. And a semi-super Target. Target stores are from MN, so we have lots of them! There is a new Costco about an hour or more away, haven't been there.
